Only six days with poorly trained staff

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We had heard excellent reports on Silverseas from friends who had travelled with them. So when we decided to take a cruise to Alaska they were the obvious choice. The cruise was delayed by one say due to problems on the previous cruise. There was little or no information provided by the company and no member of staff from Silverseas came to the hotel where the majority of the passengers were ...

Said to be high quality ship/line and good Alaska schedule. Silversea is NOT coming back well from covid; pre-travel experience poor. Checked me in wrong twice. Difficulty with Silversea air arrangements. On ship: wonderful cabins, amenities. Great service, and food (though weather precluded one of the 3 restaurants). Most excursions cancelled for various reasons. Ship broke down and spent ...

Not a Premier Cruise Line

This cruise was to be a celebration of my husband's retirement and our 36th wedding anniversary. It was a constant worry from the beginning. The SS Covid requirement of a negative test before boarding led us on a scramble around Anchorage the morning of boarding to find a test without the support of the cruise line staff. We knew the requirement but not how difficult and expensive it would be to ...

While the front-facing staff on Silversea are uniformly friendly, it was evident from the start that things were out of sync. the life boat drill that left us sitting for close to an hour because it was started with boarding incomplete. A guide to take us to our life boat station that failed to do so. Menus that were missing pages or for the wrong service. Orders that were unfulfilled or ...

I chose this cruise because of the size of the ship and the cruise lines reputation. Embarkation was sooo easy... best ever actually... our cabin was huge, loved it. Our butler, Richard was lovely, very attentive and anticipated all our needs. Entertainment was ok... nothing to write home about.... but the ports, service and ship.... perfect! Read so many negative reviews before sailing- was ...

Slightly disappointed in large group

I was on a cruise that happened to be the cruise that a couple of insurance companies seemed to have bought large room blocks to give as prizes to their best sales people. I was very disappointed in the overall "party atmosphere" of the people who received the free cruises from the insurance companies. I chose SilverSea to not have to be confronted with loud, uproarious crowds; therefore, I spent ...

Silversea experience way below expectation

2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

Our cruise started with the check in for the private train from Anchorage to Seward. The train departs from the rail station adjacent to the airport and our bags were quickly taken but then we were left to find our own coffee etc. in the airport until it was time to board the train. The waiting area for Silversea passengers was way too small, nowhere near enough seats for all the cruise passengers ...

I wanted to see Alaska and stay over night in Alaska. I now have slept overnight in all 50 states. The cruise over all was very good. Room was outstanding; food and service was very good. Outside of ship needs better maintenence i.e. rusting, flaking paint and corrosion Ports of call were great, once you got by the jewerly hucksters. The embarkation procedure both coming and going is ...

Disappointing, expected more from Silversea

This was only our second cruise, the first being a Celebrity Eclipse S1 Suite cruise from Southampton to St Petersburg. This one week cruise on the Silver Shadow Veranda Suite cost £400 less than the two week cruise on Celebrity, so we expected it to be a step up, but for us it was a step down, in fact it was a step down in every respect, I can't think of one thing that was better on Silversea. ...

My husband and I wanted to do an Alaskan cruise and had a good experience on Silver Seas in the Adriatic. The ship was ready when we got to port in Vancouver and our check-in and bag arrival to the room were seamless. Our "butler," Ardvin, was a wonderful human being and attentive without being obsequious or intrusive. Each day, the housekeeper, Wendy, had the room spotless and inviting. Meals on ...
